I'm able to normaly use dead keys over the whole system.

FYI I live in Brazil and we use accented letters, as in é á ó ã õ.

We need dead key support for this as we type first the accent key " ´ " and then the proper key " a " to get and á

It doesn't work in terminals like 'st' and 'urxvt' tough. I've searched thoroughly over the internet to no avail.

EDIT:

Change keyboard layout (English UK) on command line to English US doesn't solve my problem, as it is urxvt and st related.

Modern terminals like "tilix" or "gnome-terminal" are able to produce "á é é" characters

  • Change keyboard layout for the console as indicated in the duplicate question (sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration) – vanadium Feb 7 at 7:35
  • Unfortunately not, tried both 'console-setup' and 'console-data'. Last one had a portuguese standard which looks right but returns error: Looking for keymap to install: br-abnt2 adding map 3 violates explicit keymaps line Failed to load keymap! – Leo Zerino Feb 7 at 8:10
